TELUS Launches a Cloud-Based Mobile Device Management Solution for Canadian Businesses

Turn-key MDM solution helps businesses control wireless costs and protect against the loss of sensitive data

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- TELUS is helping businesses keep their mobile devices secure and embrace the growing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend with the launch of a new cloud-based mobile device management (MDM) solution. MDM Made Easy leverages industry-leading technology and services from AirWatch and Vox Mobile to create a turn-key MDM solution that drastically simplifies the support and enhances the security of mobile devices for Canadian businesses.

MDM Made Easy allows businesses to quickly deploy a feature-rich MDM solution without investing in infrastructure. This cloud-based solution eliminates the need for on-premise hardware, while pre-configured user profiles simplify enrolling, configuring and updating devices - freeing up a company's IT resources and expertise to focus on their core business.

MDM Made Easy is built to be customized; TELUS business customers receive a complimentary basic package for their TELUS devices and can add additional security features like secure email, application scanning, file sharing and secure web browsing. MDM Made Easy allows businesses to manage mobile devices across multiple platforms (i.e., iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows) and carriers. Businesses can also purchase licenses to manage non-TELUS devices, making it ideal for BYOD scenarios.

"The challenges IT departments face are becoming more complex with the convergence of mobility, cloud, big data and the Internet of Things, and TELUS is committed to helping our customers navigate this rapidly changing landscape," said Peter Green, senior vice-president of TELUS Business Solutions. "MDM Made Easy allows our customers to leverage the cloud to quickly deploy a robust mobile device management solution that is cost-effective, scalable and simple to manage."

MDM Made Easy is hosted in Canada by TELUS. The solution is powered by the AirWatch by VMware platform, which has been recognized by Gartner as a leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management for four consecutive years. Professional services and support for MDM Made Easy are provided by Vox Mobile, a TELUS partner in Managed Mobility Services since 2011 that was recently named a leader in global BYOD management services by Forrester research.

"By leveraging industry-leading technology and services from our partners, AirWatch and Vox Mobile, we've created a unique offering for Canadian businesses that combines connectivity, security, service, simplicity and value," added Mr. Green.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
